Excellent 9.0
Pros: The views are stunning. The access to hikes is really good. The buffet breakfast and dinner were good.
Cons: The WiFi didn't work in our room. There were a lot of cocks crowing early in the morning!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The owner and manager is very friendly and also the personal is always happy and helpful. The view from the balkony is fantastic and the village is very originally. very good place for a hike to pico dantonio and relax in the nature. a big thanks to lindolpho and his team for hosting us!
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The main selling point of this hotel is its location, high in the mountains. All of the rooms take advantage of the incredible views, and we had a balcony.
Cons: I had advised that I was a vegetarian at booking but the evening meal (a buffet) did not have any vegetarian options. An omelette was rustled up, but it would have been nice if something had been available (especially as the signs from lunch were still up, when a vegetarian meal was available). The wifi was very patchy in our room.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great views Lindorfo was a great host. He was kind and did everything to make our stay hospitable, relaxing and enjoyable. We had wine and cheese tasting at our arrival, a lovely dinner with live music and he kindly offered to drive us to the start of the Pico de Antonha hike. He helped us arrange transport for the next part of our journey. We had such a lovely time :)
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Utterly spectacular location, with stunning mountain views from the room and its spacious balcony. Lovely, friendly staff.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Very friendly and supportive staff. Simple but very good food. Clean. Great hiking trips to Pico do Antonio and the botanical gardens.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: We spent 2 nights in our honeymoon there. Lindorfo is a great manager and spend 2 evenings with us (wine, guitar and grogue), his staff is very nice. The view is spectacular, very relaxing there :) We will come back!

Pros: - the very helpful and superfriendly staff!
Cons: Nothing - everything was great!
Excellent 8.8
Pros: The staff were increasingly helpful and friendly, we felt really well looked after
Okay 5.4
Pros: The shower and the bed comfort, the best bed in the 2 weeks trip we had.
Cons: We stayed in room Boa Vista. This was a very noisy room. Sounds came from everywhere, outside (dogs, traffic, people) inside (doors moved by airflows, noise even from the room above) If I compare this room to for example the Suite at Hotel Cesaria, I choose Cesaria. Much better value for money. By the way: no balcony in this room.
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Nice, spacious and clean rooms, very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Small but sufficient pool.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Awesome breakfast, great view from the pool, nice staff
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: I liked the breakfast and the staff were very accommodating.
Cons: The swimming pool was small and dirty for a four star hotel. the safe in the room didn't work. the wooden paneling from the frame of our room fell on me when I closed the door. I wanted our last night to be special and luxurious and instead it made our last night in Cape Verde disappointing.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Very cute boutique hotel. Unique design and decoration. Location is fine. Not too far from some bars and restaurants, and the city center is less than 10 minutes cab ride. The reception staff is very good. Friendly and extremely helpful. My room was spacious, nicely decorated and very clean.
Cons: The pool is very small.
Good 7.9
Pros: Our booking through booking.com did not get throug. They fixed it quickly and even gave us an upgrade. Very good breakfast and nice location near the beach and bus number 8.
Cons: Room was a bit smelly. Adjacent street a bit noisy.

Good 7.5
Pros: The hotel is very comfortable and very nice service! I don’t know too many hotels in Praia but in my opinion this hotel is one of the best in Praia! Thank you very much and see you next time!
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Staff was super friendly going the extra mile in cleaning and preparing the rooms. Great breakfast buffet. Very nice bar. Location is very good to explore Praia and the island as well as going to the 2 small beaches west of the hotel. Excellent creole restaurant in the hotel. Overall very good value for money!
Cons: The pool needs renovation.
Good 6.3
Pros: Staff Beautiful hotel Terrasse Large beds
Cons: They use sea water to fill the pool and add a large amount of very strong chemicals. This made it impossible to let the children in the pool. They eyes were burning so bad. It was the same thing for adults. Also, I alerted to the staff that a child had voluntarily urinated in the pool and they did nothing. They said that the chemicals are so strong that it didn’t matter. I thought that was shocking. They allow people from outside the hotel to use the facilities but of course do not manage behaviour. We would not go back there
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Fabulous hotel Great staff
Good 6.0
Pros: Practical rooms. Basically all you need. Pick-up at airport included.
Cons: Too expensive for existing facilities. Not value for money. Service mediocre.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Nice generous pool area with flowers and palm trees, great breakfast buffet with seats indoor and outside, very friendly staff at reception and bar, taxis in front of hotel always available
Cons: There is a huge construction in the neighbor hood. Area is not for walking in the night. Sea view is over promised (it’s just a little view on a small strip), some small deficits (no towels, water in the shower not running etc) were immediately sorted out by very friendly staff who added whatever was missing or repaired what was not functioning ...

Cons: Water is unstable. Hot water changes the temperature all the time, from hot to cold. At night suddenly water stopped while in shower.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Check in experience was great. Admilson speaks English and he is just amazing in customer service . The team are friendly and very very helpful
Cons: Frankly not much
Excellent 10.0
Pros: "Praia (Plateau) Confort Hotel" was an excellent option. To be recommended without any restrictions. Friendly and competent staff. Nice comfortable rooms. Ideal location in the middle of the old town, the historic centre of Praia (Platô). Some nice restaurants just around the corner available.
Cons: Everything was more than ok ! Everything was excellent ! Definitely nothing to complain.
Good 7.9
Pros: We had good communication with the hotel prior to arrival, which is always comforting. The location turned out to be exceptional as we were there over Christmas and there was a lot going on in the square, right below us, and several restaurants close by. BTW, in total contrast to what some say about Praia, we thought it was a lovely town. It must be a disaster if you’re looking for mass tourism or aseptic conditions, mind: this is the real Cabo Verde. The room was adequate in all respects other than lighting, which was practically non-existent. The staff were all lovely – friendly and willing to help, whatever you asked for (e.g. wine to go with our Christmas lunch in our room when Praia was definitively shut!). Finally, the breakfast here was very good. They prepared eggs and spicy Brazilian-style sausage to order and each day there was a selection of savoury pastries on offer – cheese, sausage, etc. They looked home-made, as did the daily cakes which were amazingly light and surprisingly low in sugar content. Both the chocolate and banana cakes were delicious. Fruit, yogurts, bread etc were all on offer too.
Cons: If you want to read in your room, bring a torch or be prepared to sit right under the bedside lamp. I’m loath to mention our one big criticism of the hotel. Although they were all extremely friendly and helpful, it seemed the staff had had zero training before being left in charge. Only one receptionist had a little English; the rest really only seemed to speak Portuguese/Creole. Reception and bar were combined, but serving a G&T was quite beyond them. One of our cases went astray and they were very helpful, but had no idea how to compose an international telephone number.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Friendly staff, perfect location, clean and large rooms. Breakfast was generous as well.
Cons: A few little issues such as the shower head wouldn't stay up, and kept sliding down. Some of the staff only speak Portuguese, they're super friendly, just make sure you ask the ones that speak English everything you need to know!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Centrally located with excellent wifi. Breakfast is simple but delicious with fresh fruits on offer
Excellent 10.0
Pros: An off the beaten path place to visit. Central location, convenient to restaurants and shopping.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Kind staff, clean and comfortable room, very good position
Okay 5.8
Pros: central loction, walking distance to everything one needs in Praia.
Cons: I used to be Client of the Praiaconfort since it was opened, some 7 years ago. I was a permanent guest while running a 2 year Project. It was a nice and cosy hotel, where everything was functioning, but unfortunately there was not sufficient maintenance done. No WiFi in the room, TV had a snowy picture, reading lamp at the bed was completely gone, the shower fixing in the wall was loose, the aircon did not work etc etc what a petty!
Excellent 9.2
Pros: I had to book a hotel at the last minute when my flight was cancelled. This was a good location on Plateau. Large and very comfortable and quiet room.
Cons: Checkout took ages. Seemed to be a computer problem and the guy had no idea how to get round it.

Good 6.7
Pros: - The staff was very helpful and nice - It was one of the best breakfasts in 2 weeks traveling Cabo Verde. Compared to other hotels you had the choices of healthy / fresh vs. classic mass tourism food
Cons: - The hotel seem to have been top when it was built... and never experienced maintenance afterwards. Pieces of the pool walls are broken, deck chairs appear old, showers are rosty etc. - for 100EUR per night much too expansive for what you get in Carbo Verde. The hotel organizes an airport pick-up for 15EUR... although regular taxi cost half of that. - there are indeed nice restaurants in walking distance. Little disturbance by traffic
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Nice rooftop bar with a small pool.
Good 7.9
Pros: I loved the property location very close to the mall and most places,the staff were also helpful.
Cons: I had the same food for one week we stayed at the property, changes were not made.
Poor 1.0
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Good 7.5
Pros: For one night it’s a perfect location. Unfortunately I couldn’t check the pool. It’s not a beach hotel, it’s more a city hotel, which needs here and there refurbished. Breakfast was great and the staff very friendly.
Good 6.3
Pros: The staff was very friendly and location was great!!
Cons: My room window was broken so it was hard to fall asleep with the noise from the cars passing by and from the club near by.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: Roof terrace and pool to ourselves, organised for us to have breakfast 15 mins earlier so we could get our taxi to the airport. Great pizza restaurant around the corner.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The room was fab, reasonable price for the comfort and professional staff and attention. The food was great at the restaurant, I had breakfast and dinner there, a tad pricey but worth it. The pool although small is great and the staff just made my stay perfect, especially Ruben at the front desk and the girls in the evening manning the bar and restaurant.
Cons: I did have to move rooms from beside the lift as it made a lot of noise, but within an hour they moved me to the 4th floor which was much better.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The hotel was quiet. The breakfast selection was quite good. It's a good location for the beach but not for the plateau or bus station.
Cons: The water in shower was not hot.

Pros: Good position in the city nice rooms

Mediocre 3.0
Pros: We chose it because of the location and it claimed to offer free internet (it turned out not to be so). It's in the pedestrian area and close to restaurants and shops.
Cons: Internet wasn't working and for us it was a mandatory. The staff wasn't helpful and answered extremely vaguely when enquired about internet. First they said it would be fixed in the afternoon, then "later", then they were just interchanging smiles and saying "no internet". We felt fooled. Besides, they weren't friendly. Our room was extremely small and dark: there was a little window and all you could see were walls about 2 meters away. We were bumping against the bed as there was no space to move around. One of the 2 mattresses was very uncomfortable with springs pushing out. The shower head couldn't stand still so you had to hold it with your hand.... Breakfast was rich, but quality was poor: boxed juices and industrial meats and cheeses. It looked like the hotel occupies two adjoined buildings: one looks newer, maybe the rooms in that area are better, we were in the old building: our experience was very bad.
Good 7.0
Pros: It was affordable and they have lovely managers that wants you to enjoy your stay.
Cons: The hotel was a bit cozy. The breakfast menu was really limited.
Good 6.0
Pros: Location is great. Breakfests are good.
Cons: Double bed was from two singles put together and one sigle was broken in middle, werry uncomfortable to sleep. Walls are werry thin, you can hear all the noises in other rooms. Only window was to 4x4m open shaft through building. No view at all. Room had only soap bars, no shampoo. There were fixtures for shampo and soap, but they were empty (without bottle inside) Electricity sockets only at table, none by bed.
Good 6.7
Pros: Comfortable and clean rooms
Cons: Check in was awful! The boy on duty was absolutely clueless and made the check in experience ruin the beginning of the holiday. Over 5 nights and we only had internet service on the last day and it’s useless to ask anything to anyone as no one is ever bothered.
